|Ilorin, The Only Yoruba Town Where Egungun Is Banned by Nigerianfactor: 9:14am On Aug 02, 2022|
I have heard so much about the Yoruba heritage of Ilorin. But passing through Tinubu Square yesterday, I saw a historical piece that made the picture more clearer. I saw many interesting pictorial displays of several Nigerian cities and peoples around the water fountain.
I learned that Yoruba Egungun religious festival was a yearly cultural event until a brawl occurred and the festival was subsequently banned till date.
Nevertheless, other festivals like the Durbar are still held annually
